Seeing American land and naval forces in the nations of North Africa is becoming more common. All of these nation, even Libya, are eager to get American aid in fighting local Islamic terrorists. Morocco has, in effect, allowed American warships to base themselves in Moroccan ports. Other countries have American military trainers and advisors coming and going regularly. It is assumed that American intelligence organizations are working closely with those in North African nations as well. This effort is apparently having an impact, as terrorist incidents in North Africa are declining, and known North African Islamic terrorists are showing up in other parts of the worlds, particularly Europe and Iraq. Libya is still thought to harbor some senior officials who want to assist Islamic terrorists. Officially, Libya is against Islamic terrorism, but the situation there is murky.
